Coilovers can work very well on the road, plus i will hopefully be tracking the car too, but not much.

I've tried out both and i find the Ohlins kit superior IMO. It handles road surfaces with ease. It's hard to comprehend, but higher spring rates can give a better ride if the dampers are good.

I just don't believe that one spring matched with one damper can suit all applications/road surfaces. I feel more comfortable knowing that i can adjust to my taste.
